Loss of power after 7000 RPM
I have a 04 950 adventure that started doing something new. During hard acceleration the bike pulls strong to 7000 rpm and then has sudden loss of power. The rpm shudders like its hitting a rev limiter and then backfires. When you shift and get on it again the motor runs fine until 7000 again. The motor runs great under 7000. Any thoughts.

Are the spark plug caps on all the way? I have the this happen before and this was the cause.
